Hi everyone My problem is that i am using javascript form validation for the first time and have made a function "Validateform()" to validate "emailid" field in my Form.
Now the problem is that it's not working.

Now in my registeration form when i enter a wrong email id for e.g ppl ,it still inserts it in database rather than giving an alert as specified in function ValidateForm() in my Javascript.

Thanks Karthik.R
So that means the match() function caused it to not work ?

No, it means that the regex was incorrect. Dots (.) need to be escaped (\.) because otherwise, they allow any character.
